    Hello. I got the card today and an hour later I found the dreaded error 4. Since then I've been working on how I can work around it and lower my chances to get that error.

    So far, I set the micro sd to exfat and I'll make sure to drop the nds (the brick one) before I power it off. Anything else I can do?

    I'd also recommend using FAT32 instead of exFAT. For GBA Games, there is no reason to use exFAT as the limits for FAT32 are well above what GBA games require. FAT32 is a lot less fragile than exFAT as it keeps a second copy of the FAT, whereas exFAT only maintains one copy. Once that is gone, the data is pretty much gone.
